Draymond Green OVER 8.5 Points

— Taking a look at Draymond Green’s BetPrep Player Page, you can see he doesn’t normally average over 8.5 Points.

— Still, he’s one of the best rebounders on the team. He has a high field goal percentage while seeing enough volume to hit this mark. Green could see a few putbacks to help accelerate his point total.

— Taking into consideration that they’re playing the Thunder on Tuesday, Green should be able to get at least nine points. After all, Oklahoma City ranks 29th in defensive efficiency to opposing at this point in the season. They were 28th in that mark last season.

— The frontcourt duo of Christian Wood and Jae’Sean Tate combined for 47 points against the Thunder on Friday. Green should be able to find some room to work in this one.

Russell Westbrook OVER 16.5 Points

— Some might be worried about Westbrook’s start to the season, but we’re confident in his ability. He just needs a catalyst to get things going.

— That catalyst could come in the form of LeBron James’ injury, as dealing with “leg soreness”. He could be out for the game against the Spurs.

— This will lead to Russell Westbrook seeing more time on the court, more usage, and inevitably scoring more points. We could see some of that upside from his ridiculous season with the Wizards in 2020-21.

Kevin Porter Jr. UNDER 15.5 Points

— Although he’s an intrinsic part of the Rockets offense, Porter Jr. focuses on distributing the ball evenly now.

— He currently averages just 14.7 points per game, but his assists are up to 5.3 assists per game.

— They’re facing the Dallas Mavericks, which will pit him against Luka Doncic, who doesn’t surrender very many points.

Tim Hardaway Jr. OVER 2.5 Assists

— Hardaway currently averages under 2.5 assists per game, but he’ll spread the ball around more against the Rockets. To put it mildly, Houston’s defense is rough. They ranked 23rd in opponent assist rate last season, and we aren’t expecting an upgrade based on their current roster.

— Luka Doncic is in a favorable matchup, which means Hardaway will try to work the ball over to him more. It goes without saying that he’s the type of player you want on the receiving end of your passes when trying to rack up assists.

— It will be a low-scoring game for Hardaway, giving him more opportunities to work the ball around to the open players. Take the over here.

Stephen Curry OVER 5.5 3P

— Curry is in a favorable matchup against the defense of the Oklahoma City Thunder. OKC ranked bottom ten in defensive efficiency to point guards last season, and we aren’t expecting an upgrade this year.

— The Thunder give up an average of nine threes per game, and that’s primarily what Curry looks for each game.

— Curry averages 31 points per game, and most of those points come from beyond the arc, making this a great prop bet.

Andrew Wiggins OVER 0.5 Steals

— Wiggins usually lands at least one steal per game; there’s a chance he could grab two against the Thunder.

— This is going to be a fast-paced game, which leaves a lot of room for turnovers, and Wiggins can capitalize on it.

— He’s seeing much more time on the floor, which gives him plenty of opportunities for a steal against Oklahoma City.
